Why I became a practitioner
As a British Wheel of Yoga pregnancy teacher and running successful classes in my area many women have told me how invaluable the "tools" I had taught them for labour and birth that after researching many positive results about NH that I felt compelled to do the training as it would truly enhance their experience.My core beliefs surrounding pregnancy and birth
Becoming parents begins at conception and pregnancy and birth is an important part of the journey! I believe there is a lot of fear and ignorance surrounding childbirth in our society and once women and their partners are taught how instinctive birth can be they can have a calm, confident and overall positive experience.My experience of working with pregnant women and my personal experience of Natal Hypnotherapy
I have been running Yoga for Pregnancy classes in Dorchester, Dorset for two years which have been very enjoyable and successful. I have a lot of positive feedback particularly regarding how the relaxation is helpful in their very busy lives!Feedback from my classes
"This course should be on the NHS. All expectant parents can benefit."
"A must for all couples. A very bonding experience - empowering for both the mother and the father - better than any NCT or postnatal class I have ever attended. My little girl was born in 58 minutes! (from 3cm dilated to her being placed on my tummy). Her arrival was an amazing experience - I tell her she was born with love. I felt in control throughout the whole of my labour and much more knowledgeable about my body and what stage I was act. My little girl and I acted as a team - and it is something I will remember for the rest of my life.
"As a worried expectant father, I learned so many ways to help my wife - as well as building my confidence to deal effectively with the medical team at the hospital
"Fantastic course, so pleased we came, I would recommend it to everyone, it should be compulsory for all pregnant women, their partners and midwives. There was a wealth of information that was really useful especially the tools for birth. "
"It was very well structured and very informative to someone who was very sceptical at the beginning. The key parts for me were the breathing control and giving me the confidence to support my partner. The trainer was very good, very clear, was not judgmental and encouraged questions - the delivery of course was excellent."
"Thanks for a great 2 days. It was really useful for me to understand about the phases of birth and how to deal with the medical team and being given an important role in the whole process. I particularly enjoyed the hypnosis sessions and felt very comfortable asking any questions and talking about my fears"
"Understanding the physiology in plain English was great - it made me realize how natural it is and that relaxing is going to be far more beneficial than panicking"My related qualifications & Associations
